    Penalty SA is most useless

    Let me say out what is on everybody's mind but no one say it as it is so obvious -- Penalty SA is the most useless SA among all SAs.

    Seldom need to use it, and when called upon to use, randomness still play a major role. And in a penalty shootout, the penalty SA is only one of many who will put the ball in the net, since it usually goes in. And surprise surprise, he sometimes misses.

    That said, I'd like to say my favourite historical penalty experts are players such as Eric Cantona, temperamental in usual situations but cool as ice on the penalty.

    Yes. My player Ludovic who has free kick SA has been taking penalty since I formed my club and now I am at Level 3 and he is yet to miss a penalty.

    I prefer having my Player without an ability rather than having the penalty one

    Im my club history the PK SA is more a PK Missing Specialist than a ability to score lol many many times the player who misses in my determinant PK rounds was the only with SA xD

    I heard they made a mistake with the penalty special ability icon, I think this is what it was supposed to look like

    Same with me, I agree with everyone here, the old penalty SA guys I had would miss frequently, but Benitez has taken a lot of penalties, and he scored all of them except one, he has no Penalty SA.

    I think most of SA are useless. ST with one on one SA who almost always dribble into GK, MC with Player maker who rarely has an assist, dribble SA is evidently useless. Other SAs I cannot verify, free kick SA could not be verified except the curve trajectory...

    all SA are useles, they all need a major re-do,persinaly, i think we need new set of them that will works, allready posted it few times.. but on fast, we need header and dribble for striker, long disstance shoot SA for dmc and mc, aerial reach and shoot stoper for goalie,
    disstance high ball in box for defensive wingers, etc etc, but need them to work not just for looks,
    As it looks now, easier to find DC with pen spec or free kick SA than amc with passing SA, not to mention that pure attackers cant train dribble skill and that is one of most important to them to pass over the defenders since 1 on 1 not work at all

    My free kick SA scores on about 1/2 to 1/3 of attempts.

    Not only the penalty SA. There are other useless SAs on the game one of which is one on one SA for striker
